2019-20 Panini Illusions Basketball Cards
Jumping over from the NFL, 2019-20 Panini Illusions Basketball is a debut release on the court.
The brand features Hobby Direct and Retail boxes. The "Hobby Direct" distinction should indicate that the set is sold straight from Panini rather than going through a Hobby distributor.

2019-20 Panini Illusions Basketball highlights 150 veterans and 50 rookies in the 200-card base set. There are multiple parallels, including several different versions to hunt down in retail boxes.
